Mollie Spencer Family Farm
1001 Garth Brooks Blvd, Yukon OK


Trying to manage an event in 2020 has proven to be difficult at best, and impossible at its worst. Just like most other groups responsible for festivals of any type this year, we kept getting thrown curve balls. We tried so hard to have the Iron Thistle be the great festival in October as we give you in April. No sooner had we voted as a board to go ahead and have the festival, and then the curve balls started coming.
As a Board we were not sure what to do, as we didn’t want to give you an inferior festival. Then it hit us, what if we moved forward with the only part of the festival that wasn’t having any issues? So, this is what we came up with.


For this year only we are ONLY GOING TO HAVE the Highland Games and Food Trucks.

We are making this FREE so everyone can get out of their house and have a nice day.


Now, the Mollie Spencer Family Farm is still going to require everyone to sign a waiver, and while masks aren’t required, they are certainly are recommended. We really do appreciate everyone’s understanding with this and hope that 2021 decides to take it easy on us next year. We look forward to bringing you the best possible festival we can next year.

In the spirit of the ancient Scots, heavy athletes gather to compete against each other in displays of strength and skill, including the caber toss, hammer throw, weight over bar, and more.

At the Iron Thistle, attendees can watch the traditional heavy athletics events, called the Highland Games, as well as special Iron Thistle events including the Great Sheaf Off.

If you have questions about the athletic events, please contact Athletic Director Jonathan Irvin at 405.834.1876 or
